    Default Grand Cherokee starting problem

    Have difficulty in starting from cold even in the heatwaves. Once hot no problem. Can't see any diesel leaks. Some advice needed on this please.

    I propose you to ask in Jeep section. There are quite a few experts. Just give more details about the model/year/engine type.

    If it is a 2.7 crd with the Merc engine then have a careful look at those plastic diesel pipes. They have o-rings that tend to seal less than perfect when they get oldish and this lets in air when the engine isnt running for a while. Easily enough to replace. The other change to make is to get rid of those plastic t-pieces on the injector bypasses. I replaced mine with alu ones that I bought from Bosch Diesel Services. They can supply you with the correct o-rings as well.

    My E270 Merc had similar issues, but after replacing those she ran fine. Had 460k km on the clock when I sold her...
